Depending on your design project, buying all the decorative items you need for your commercial property may require a hefty investment. Just as with any other type of investment, assessing the features and benefits of the items you intend to select is very important given that your final decision will impact your budget in both the short and long term.
When evaluating the pros and cons of different planter materials, the question you should ask yourself is: Are there any financial advantages I should consider when choosing a specific material? To help, we’ve canvassed over different aspects that show how fiberglass planters could save you money this year as well as in the long run.
Fiberglass Planters Are High-Quality
The planters that we provide at Jay Scotts Collection are made of high-quality fiberglass that is similar to the material used to manufacture outdoor products like boats and exterior doors. Additionally, our fiberglass planters are finished with high-quality automotive- or marine-grade paints, which provide a durable gel-coat layer that protects the fiberglass planters from weather extremes, including strong UV radiation, frost, snow, and rain.
As these paints are sturdy enough to withstand regular forms of abuse and different chemicals—including the minerals that are present in the potting soil and the substances that are used to sanitize the pool water—they rarely deteriorate due to normal wear and tear. As a result, fiberglass planters will hold their vibrant colors over time. Even when they lose their luster, simple tricks like cleaning them with soapy water and applying fiberglass wax will restore them to their original appearance.
Compared to plastic, wood and terracotta flower pots, which degrade over time and require regular replacement, fiberglass planters can be used season after season, year after year, with minimal maintenance.
Fiberglass Planters Are Lightweight
Regardless of how large they are, planters need to be moved around sometimes to accommodate different events. While you might need special equipment to change the location of large metal, concrete or wood plant containers that are filled with potting material and plants, large fiberglass planters are lightweight enough to be moved around by a few people, even if they contain potting soil and plants. As you don’t need any special equipment to move these planters around, you can save the money you would otherwise spend buying or renting such equipment. Because fiberglass planters are lighter than other types of plant containers and don’t require special equipment to be placed in your property, opting for these planters will also allow you to cut down on shipping costs.
Fiberglass Planters Come in Trendy Colors
Fiberglass planters feature a wide range of colors that make them perfect additions to most commercial design applications. This basically means that you can always find a planter color that’s identical, or very similar to the Pantone Color of the Year. Since the Pantone Color of the Year defines the trendsetting concept that designers, decorators, interiorscapers and landscapers will use in their design projects over the next 12 months, the wide variety of fiberglass planter colors that we make available allows you to create an effortlessly stylish decor every year, while keeping costs to a minimum.
For instance, our matte cobalt shade is very similar to the Pantone Color of the Year 2020, Classic Blue. Adding several matte cobalt fiberglass planters to your commercial design scheme is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to get trendy decor this year. If you need specific planter colors that aren’t readily available, Jay Scotts Collection can develop custom finishes upon your request.
Fiberglass Planters Provide Design Flexibility
When it comes to rich planter textures, fiberglass is definitely the way to go. The Spiral Modern Fiberglass Planter, Alicante Ribbed Round Fiberglass Planter and San Jose Ribbed Round Tapered Fiberglass Planter are just three examples of fiberglass planters that look more expensive than they actually are.
Additionally, fiberglass can be molded into just about any shape, texture and size. Besides simple fiberglass planters with straight lines, Jay Scotts Collection manufactures some beautiful round and oval planters, including mega bowls and large, tapered urns. The Bara Jar Fiberglass Planter, Kathryn Tapered Square Fiberglass Planter, Globe Modern Fiberglass Planter and Seoul Rectangle Fiberglass Planter are just a few planters that reveal the malleability of this magnificent material.
When factoring in all the benefits of fiberglass planters, it’s easy to understand why choosing these planters over other plant container options can save you a lot of money. Considering their convenience, flexibility, versatility and style, fiberglass planters aren’t an unnecessary expense; they’re a good investment that will improve your company’s image.
